Rolls-Royce Gnome

De Havilland H2 Ghost
                                            Rolls-Royce Gnome

The Ghost was designed as a larger and more powerful version of the Goblin. After running for the first time on 2 September 1945 the engine was cleared for flight in the outer nacelles of an Avro Lancastrian at 4000 lb thrust. The Ghost later went into production at 5000 lb thrust to power the de Havilland Comet 1 airliner and Venom fighter
